Uploading a file by parsing request

Hi All,
I have a form where I place <input type="file" /> tags. When the form submits, I want to write the image to a server directory. So I cannot do it in the normal Struts 2.0 way. I have to parse the request and get the files out of it and write it to a server directory. I am using the following code. It works in Servlets but not in a Struts framework.

Line 25 of the above code returns either null or empty list. I call it as follows from a Struts action.

Any ideas on what I may be missing here and if there are any other alternatives, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Fawad Ali.
